“Back in the day, Walter would, every once in a while, forget how to draw. Remember?" Louise said.

“Oh yeah,” Walter agreed. “That still happens occasionally. It’s like, ‘Oh my god, nothing I’m drawing looks any good anymore. My life is over as an artist.’ And what I realized, because I was an editor at the time, and had seen a lot of work go past me, was that when you hit this phase where suddenly your stuff, which looks just like it did yesterday, doesn’t look good to you anymore, it’s because your mind has made a leap. Your brain has gotten farther than your hand has learned to do it yet. But eventually, give it a few weeks, keep it up and you’ve made a leap in your own craft. That was a big help because it was so depressing when you realize you couldn’t draw anymore.”

Some days you have a weird moment of clarity and ask yourself just what the fuck you’ve been doing for the last two months.

Somebody asked for “Buff Latino girl with a huge scar over here right eye” - kinda looks like an MMA fighter or something.

Hey, you - internet, miscellaneous followers - gimme characters to draw! These aren’t commissions - I make no promises of timeliness or quality, and I ask that you have no expectations of either. For the purposes of practicing figure drawing, all the substantive work is done in the first couple minutes or so; hence, all of these weird naked mannequin people. It would be nice for at least some of these drawings to have a chance of entertaining something other than my own whimsy. 

Someone asked for “Sam” from Princess Mononoke,so I figured this was probably close enough.
